Strange Cinema Film Series "Blue Velvet"

Blue Velvet (David Lynch, 1986, 120min.)

Widely regarded as one of David Lynch’s finest works, Blue Velvet is a modern-day film noir injected with surrealism. The film centers on eccentric college student who, returning from visiting his ill father in the hospital, comes across a human ear in a field in his hometown of Lumberton.

In support of the Museum exhibition, Ruud van Empel: Strange Beauty, this three-part film series delves into the creative process and cinematic influences of artist Ruud van Empel.

Admission: Free for MOPA Members, $6 for Students/Seniors, $8 General

Purchase tickets online or on the evening of the event. Questions? Contact our Film & Public Programs Manager by email (parra@mopa.org) or phone (619.238.7559 ext. 236)
